A peaceful breeze

Look to the heavens

A bit of blue sky and a light breeze: a pleasant Sikkim afternoon.

I’m routinely impressed with the resilience of my students. Few cry. I’d be generalizing, but I can’t say I see their general outgoing spirit in American children of the same ages.

Sometimes, however, they do get a little grumpy. Sittal, a five-year-old who loves it when I pick him up over my head, just needed a pick-me-up.
